This is why we teach them how to organise themselves independently, use open-ended questioning, encourage creative problem-solving and celebrate effort. Children learn how to work by themselves, in pairs and in groups.
The children should maintain their inherent joy of learning as part of the world they live in. This is why we create practical learning opportunities in the Reception classroom by going on external learning visits to the library, museums, the theatre, the organic farmer, or the forest. Many of our learning activities take place outdoors. Our projects always include sense impressions, a healthy image of self and good relationships with others.
Thus children are well prepared to start First Grade.
